Kit for an American Town (K4AT) is predicated on the assumption that it is possible to create a kit that represents all the things an American town requires. The first edition of K4AT is presented as a ‘starter pack’ of sixteen acrylic pieces, a manual describing each piece, a rectangle of artificial turf for construction and play, and two chairs.The audience is invited to play with these archetypes, and through interaction reflect on how mythic American identities are created and reinforced in the architecture that surrounds us.
